"I get more information about Dad with EmPowerYu than I would if I lived down the street and saw him everyday."
Linnea M., long distance family caregiver
Easy to use
People who want oversight from families and their medical team can now get personal, proactive, and preventive care to keep them in their own homes more safely. Everyone in the care circle benefits from having the same up to date information
Numeric Home Life Record(R)
To help patients struggling to provide information to their doctors, EmPowerYu's Home Life Record(R) collects and lists daily life descriptions, and integrates medical device readings. This relieves both care recipient and and care givers from tedious documentation and inaccurate reporting, and replaces 'I'm fine" with numeric descriptions that allow trend analysis and entry into electronic health records.
Summary view for a family caregiver
The green checkmarks indicate that behavior and environment are normal.
The orange exclamation indicates a medical device reading out of range, which also turns the banner orange to draw attention.
The square walking figure tells the observer that Mrs Mac is active at home right now.
For easy review, the real-time dashboard shows a current summary (as above for families, tabulated version for care teams), and daily and weekly patterns at a glance. Authorized caregivers can see timing and frequency of sleep gaps or visits to the toilet, whether there is activity throughout the day, when kitchen and entertainment devices like microwaves and TVs are used, and whether medical device readings are taken.
Eating values are produced by an algorithm that learns the amount of activity typical of that home, and determines a personal threshold for activity high enough to be labeled a 'meal'. Kitchen score is a measure of meal complexity. A coffee-and-toast meal produces a low score, while effort spent preparing the food produces a higher score. Appetite is an important indicator of wellness.
EmPowerYu learns the pattern of expected events like morning time out of bed, TV usage, and meals, and can tell caregivers when timing of those events change. We have automated what the family understands when they say "I know Grandma is not feeling well when she misses her soap opera". Caregivers can have Normalcy Notifications, Out-of-Pattern alerts, and Out-of-Range alerts set to their preferences.
Preserve family assets
Many families cannot afford the cost of professional home caregivers, but are worried about their loved one who is living independently in the community. EmPowerYu provides information to authorized caregivers at a fraction of the cost of hiring home aides. Even when nobody is onsite, EmPowerYu caregivers can see whether their loved one is on his or her normal routine. We keep people connected to their care providers - through pandemics and flu season, snow storms and heat waves, day in and day out.
